Bryant once again addressed the two lawsuits (for more than $861,000 combined) over this past weekend, telling reporters that everything has been handled.
While Bryant may want to put his money woes behind him, he still owes Colleyville jeweler and ticket broker Eleow Hunt a little more than $600,000 for jewelry, tickets and personal loans, attorney Beth Ann Blackwood told ESPN Dallas on Sunday night
Bryant, who was a sophomore at Oklahoma State when the spending spree began, was supposed to repay Hunt when he signed either an NFL or promotional contract, whichever came first. Bryant and adviser David Wells signed 17 receipts from January 2009 to July 2010, the lawsuit said. The longest wait between purchases was 2½ months
He bought at least seven men’s watches and two more for women. He paid $65,500 for a diamond cross made of white gold and $60,000 for a custom charm. He ordered a set of dog tags made of white gold and diamonds, and all sorts of other rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces in various shades of gold, nearly all crammed with diamonds.
And finally, according to a pair of Texas lawsuits, Bryant ponied up for tickets to Cowboys and Mavericks playoff games, and to see LeBron James play. He also acquired some cash, at least $35,000. (ABC)
Is there anything in there that is surprising? To tell you the truth I'm half disappointed there wasn't any bills for a throne, crown, and scepter. If you're hanging with all the homies at your sweet ass pad, how are you supposed to let everyone know you're The Man? You bop em on the dome with your fucking gold scepter when they forget to fast forward the commercials that's how.
